Eleanor and Andy’s wedding at Hallsannery, Bideford

Situated just a mile outside Bideford and perched high above the banks of the River Torridge Hallsannery is an imposing manor house with stunning grounds to match. Eleanor and Andy had chosen Hallsannery to celebrate their wedding with family and friends, using the grounds to erect a magnificent marquee where we would serve the wedding breakfast. We’ve provided wedding catering at Hallsannery many times over the last few years, treating thousands of guests and to excellent catering experience.

We first met Eleanor & Andy when they were looking for a wedding caterer for their north Devon wedding, we sent them a copy of our Wedding Collections menus and together started planning the catering for their day.

The couple had chosen to start by serving canapes on the lawn complimented with Prosecco, Pimms and Elderflower and once guests had moved to the marquee Eleanor & Andy had selected a wonderful three course seated wedding breakfast.
